Hospital Waste Management and Infection Prevention, course 4

From November 7-11 the fourth and final course on Hospital Waste Management and Infection Prevention was conducted by Mr. Sierd Hoekstra during five days in one of the classrooms of the Kenyatta Medical Training Center. Fourteen senior nurses from seven hospitals were participating in this course. The course was a mix of theory about modern hospital waste management and infection prevention, and workshops for the participants in which they work out practical work plans for their own facility. Regular presentations of the intermediate results of participants in front of the group were held daily and led to fruitful and enthusiastic discussions.
By the end of the week the participants had enough information, knowledge and tools to return to their facilities and improve their local situation.
Tools and principles were based on the ISO 14001 methodology as well as on WHO and IFC recommendations.
